The Holzwart surname is derived from the Upper German word "holz," which means "forest." Thus many of the names that evolved from this root work have to do with living in the woods, or being in the lumber industry. For example, Holzhauer, means lumberjack.

Holzwart Early Origins



The surname Holzwart was first found in Swabia, where the name came from noble beginnings and gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. The name Holz has been associated with the noble cantons of Kocher and Ottenwald, where the family was connected to the great ruling dynasty of the Hohenstaufens. It is believed that the Holz family possessed feudal forest rights, and the oldest traced descendant of this branch is Siegfried von Holtz, who lived in Wuerttemberg around 1120. It later became more prominent as many branches of the same house acquired distant estates and branches, some in foreign countries, always elevating their social status by their great contributions to society.
